Patient's Page-Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Mrs. Malathi Venkatesan, Trustee of MOHAN Foundation and TANKER Foundation was a kidney transplant recipient. This article was one of many in ITN by patients offering perspectives about their condition.
“... When I was diagnosed to have CRF, in the early stages I was very normal, active and full of vigour that on many occasions I even forgot about my renal problem. Then slowly when the creatinine and urea levels were rising slightly, fatigue started to set in. I also thought the fatigue could be due to restricted diet specially less of protein and salt and tried various combinations to increase the intake without disturbing the daily allowance. Slowly but steadily this fatigue became a very evident part of me and become chronic. I was unable to do even small normal chores and kept procrastinating...Of course, things changed dramatically after the transplant. Within a month I felt so recharged with energy like a flickering zero watt bulb replaced by a hundred watt bulb....”
